    I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great communication up the chain. Everyone is interested in seeing the individual grow and move up. Everyone works together to ensure vacation and days off happen. Everyone works together to achieve goals and standards. It's a great feeling knowing that some of the profits are benefitting charities and cancer research.


    At times there are long hours and long days.

    Learning and Development Specialist Americas Region Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Huntsman Corp (Houston, TX).


    I applied online, had a phone screen with an HR rep, and then was invited on-site for a one-hour panel style interview. While on-site, I first met with an HR staff member who reviewed their benefits package with me. Then the interview began. While the other panelists seemed friendly and approachable, the actual hiring manager was aloof and reserved. He looked at his watch a lot and seemed disinterested in everything I said. When the hour was up, he had no follow up questions and cut off the interview. I was shocked to learn that there were only a total of 2 employees (one manager and one L&D specialist) in the Learning and Development department expected to provide services for the entire Americas region. In both the phone and panel interview, they asked a lot of specific questions pertaining to my comfort level making coffee, copies, handling logistics, etc. (typical training coordinator duties) because the role was expected to serve this function as well.
